    At my birthday party, I had a friend of mine constantly showing me pics, sound clips, everything he downloaded on his berry. Even while the cake was being placed before me. I love my BB but I was wishing that his was shoved somewhere. lucky for him, I didn't blow out all the candles on the first try.

    I once heard on a well-known talk show that a woman was using her BB during love-making!!! That is just wrong!!!

    I live in the Philadelphia PA area. I was half way into a 3 hour drive to Virginia when I realized my BB was missing off my hip. In a panic I pulled over and searched my vehicle without success. I went to a road stop and asked a stranger to dial my number so I could listen for that distinctive vibration sound /ring tone without success. I finally realized that I would have to continue on to Virginia.....................After driving back home first to find my BB with my luggage inside my front door. I guess leaving it with my luggage so I wouldn't forget it wasn't the smartest plan in hindsight.

    Assuming that addiction can't be seen in anyway bad or harmful, absolutely!

    I got my first BB in october (I love my Pearl!). I never understood the whole additction thing until I got one. I couldn't put the thing down! That is, until it started affecting my school work....and everything else!

    I know it's addicting, but sometimes you just have to say no! (Or at the least, say later)

    I'm pretty sure I could easily become addicted, but I've been very careful not to just yet.

    Let's revisit this message again in say 3 months!

    It helps to turn off the vibrate, ringers, and flashing red light to not be addicted. Of course, why would anyone want to do that, those are the fun things!

    Best way to avoid the addition of email is turn off all notifications for email and messages. That is the only way I can escape checking my email when out to dinner with my wife.

    I am a total CrackBerry addict. My cousin has already announced that she's gonna take me to counseling! Lol. I am constantly finding a use for my Pearl. Making shopping lists, using the calculator, calendar, listening to music, reading the news, replying to texts and emails and, of course, taking pics of my kids and sending them to my blogs!

    So, yes, I'm addicted but I know when enough is enough. I am a CrackBerry head by choice, but my family (and some friends) come first!

    Okay since I am addicted, I can not give you a story about kicking it. But I can tell you that my wife, father, mother, brother (2), brother-in-law (2), and sister-in-law all think that the following story is sick.

    My wife and I go on vacation, to a remote spot where it is nothing but beaches. We spend an obscene amount of money on the hotel, and the trip. It is our wedding anniversary. What do I do, well, I am on the beach with my old blackberry (so no sand will get into the new one) emailing folks, speaking on conf calls, playing games. I AM ON THE BEACH!! No place on vacation was safe from my blackberry ways. It is so wrong, but I don't want to be right!

    I was opposed to smartphones / PDA type phones for a long time and when it came time to switch carriers, I gave the Curve a try and will never go back.

    It's a tool. I use it as a tool. I am too busy with other things to let it control my life.

    But I have to have a cell phone at work, so why not a BB? That's not an addiction - it's a NEED!

    I've only had my Curve for a couple of weeks, and I know I'm getting to the point of addiction. I'm constantly on forums for blackberries, searching every site for new word on new devices and the upcoming 4.3 OS, and now I'm on here instead of studying for finals!
